The Lebanese Army has said that four Israeli planes crossed into Lebanese airspace over the Mediterranean Wednesday afternoon conducting "several unwarranted flights," Iranian Press TV reported.

According to the report, the planes left Lebanese airspace late Wednesday afternoon over the southern village of Alma esh-Shaab, near Rosh Hanikra.

UN Security Resolution 170, drafted at the end of the Second Lebanon War in 2006, restricts Israeli military presence Lebanon south of the Litani River.
